    Am travelling indigo almost since the month it was launched. Have been a frequent flyer sinc then. Not more than 2 or 3 times i have seen indigo taking of late. I also have an incident when it took off late due to congestion at New Delhi airport (Pre T3 days) but eventually landed on time. Needless to say their quality of service and consistency in delivering services has been unparalleled all through these years. .
